York County World War II-era pictures make you feel you’re marching with the military

YorkTownSquare has put up a past post with a black and white photo of the marchers in Dallastown, Pa., post World War II. And also posted is a colorized version of that picture that covers a wall in the Metro Bank near Interstate 83 and South Queen Street in York Township. But above we have them together – an interesting comparison. You feel you’re marching with the military. The colorization of local scenes is a successful program by Metro Bank to capture community. How do we know it works? If you click on the comments button from the York Daily Record Facebook page above, you’ll find a community conversation about the photos, including a picture from a resident, Angie Deller Neff, with an arrow identifying her great uncle.
